"[T]he book will draw readers in through its engaging storytelling and compelling characters they can't help but care about. The novel probes questions of the types of victims who garner public sympathy and those who are overlooked. An edge-of-your-seat thriller with a deeply satisfying ending and a message that lingers." --Kirkus Reviews

"De la Cruz combines familiar thriller beats with a socially conscious narrative to deliver a breakneck story that outpaces its ripped-from-the-headlines influences to establish its own labyrinthine twists. This timely work gratifyingly interrogates the core question of what determines whose disappearance gets taken seriously and whose gets ignored." --Publishers Weekly

"A mix of Gone Girl and true crime, this is a twisty plot that highlights the role race, media, and fame can play in solving a crime . . . . This is a clever take that will please fans of the genre and de la Cruz's books." --School Library Journal

"[T]he perfect blend of ripped-from-the-headlines drama and insightful writing." --Forbes

"[S]et to be one of the buzziest YA thrillers of early 2023." --Paste Magazine

"This fast-paced thriller has plenty of shocking reveals and shady characters, as we follow the story of a missing influencer who seems to embody the Missing White Woman scenario, but may have been more complex than the media is interested in portraying." --Crimereads

"Fans of true crime will love this suspense-filled story." --Daily Mom

"Going Dark is perfect for adding to your summer reads if you love to lose yourself in a young adult thriller . . . . Fans of true crime fiction will love the twists and turns of this perfect summer thriller." --Daily Mom

"An intense roller coaster of a thriller and a searing indictment of which victims get our attention and sympathy. Melissa de la Cruz is a master of her craft--she cuts you to the quick and makes you love it." -New York Times bestselling author Marie Lu
